The Before and After

Hello everyone,

Its been quite a week but I can proudly say our new fabric room is finished, looking great and open to the public. The response we’ve had has been brilliant.

So here’s how it looked before….


and here’s how it looks now….

Looks great doesn’t it.

A big huge thankyou to hubby who did all the planning and work x.

However it did mean we’ve had to move the rest of the shop about and now the knitting and crochet class will be held downstairs in the Haberdashery.

Since hubby has been a busy bee I thought I’d better keep myself busy by cracking on with my new City & Guilds coursework (which I’m thoroughly enjoying).

So whats the plan for next week…..Hopefully work will start on the upstairs where I’m planning to make a light and bright studio for my work and for the quilting and patchwork workshops to take place…..can’t wait.

Thank you for your continuing support both online and in store.

See you next week.
